Centria Healthcare is Dedicated to the Well-Being of its Clients

Earlier this year, it was brought to our attention that a Behavior Technician acted in violation of Centria Healthcare’s strict policies and procedures. Without hesitation, Centria Healthcare responded proactively by reporting this incident to the police, the appropriate Community Mental Health, the child’s family, and terminated the employee in a timely manner. The individual was arrested and has now pled guilty, resolving the case and allowing us to provide this update.

At Centria Healthcare, we put our clients at the center of everything we do. The well-being and safety of the children in our care is our top priority, and we understand that it’s our responsibility to earn and maintain the trust of every child and their family members. That is why our company mission is to help every child living with autism to develop, pursue and achieve their goals and dreams through high-quality ABA therapy and support.  

To ensure that each child is receiving high-quality and professional care, Centria Healthcare requires its Behavior Technicians to demonstrate mastery of our extensive and structured training program by passing a comprehensive final exam. This onboarding process includes:

  • Accredited coursework, which includes training on understanding autism, principles of behavior, skill acquisition, HIPAA compliance, ethics for Behavior Technicians, and more
  • Ethics and emergency coursework to prepare our employees on identifying and reporting abuse and neglect, emergency preparedness, anti-harassment and non-discrimination policies, Medicare/Medicaid general compliance training, recipient rights, and more
  • Background Checks before being hired - each Behavior Technician goes through six rigorous background checks.  These measures are taken very seriously, so that every child can learn in a safe and quality environment.

Centria is committed to the highest levels of compliance with the laws and regulations protecting the children under our care. Under no circumstances does Centria Healthcare tolerate any violation of the strict guidelines we have in place to protect the children that we serve.  Should any instance arise where we need to enforce disciplinary action, we take swift and immediate action.
